9/4 Premier League Champions Tip

We successfully tipped Liverpool to win the 2019-20 Premier League title with similar odds pre-season and will happily take Jurgen Klopp’s side at the price 12 months later.

Manchester City are once again heavy favourites to regain the Premier League but we see no value in 4/5 at this stage.

Pep Guardiola hasn’t convinced us that he’s upgraded his defence significantly, with Nathan Ake from Bournemouth being the only arrival.

The Citizens will be relying on Aymeric Laporte to stay fit for the campaign, otherwise the Spaniard will be looking to the inexperienced Eric Garcia, holding midfielder Fernandinho, or John Stones or Nicolas Otamendi to fill in.

Leroy Sane has been sold to Bayern Munich, though he was out for virtually all of last season through injury. But maybe that’s why Manchester City dropped some points. The German international offered both pace and a goalscoring threat, particularly when introduced as a substitute versus tired legs.

Liverpool have been quiet in the transfer market for a second consecutive summer, with left-back Kostas Tsimikas from Olympiacos the only arrival to date.

They still have one of the best front three in world football though – Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino. They had the best defensive record in the Premier League last season and dominate possession.

Liverpool are great value at this price having finished 18 points clear of runners-up Manchester City just a few months ago.

Best bet: Liverpool to win the 2020-21 Premier League at 9/4 with Bet365
